The DNA of Real Estate

The DNA of Real Estate


Remember back to freshman biology and you learned the design and structure of DNA? Maybe you slept through this part of class but I bet you have a good idea that DNA is the amazing structure within our cells that dictates everything about a living organism. How it will look, function, grow, etc.


The other day, a new agent was sharing that while in their real estate classes, one of the wise instructors mentioned to the students how no two real estate deals are ever the same! The client changes, terms are different, type of property, financed, not financed, and on and on. The bottom line, real estate deals are extremely unique and one-of-a-kind.


This my friends, is what makes real estate not only never boring, but also extremely challenging. This is why experience is key in this business. We all must begin with zero experience therefore, it is very important for the new, inexperienced agent to have a very experienced mentor.


So, the DNA of real estate means each and every transaction will have its own unique design and nuances. Every real estate deal will provide new experiences, frustrations, and ultimately valuable learning lessons. This is also why no matter how long you have been in this business, you NEVER stop learning!


The best real estate agents are those who continue to learn and take classes not just because their CE hours are due. Talent is one thing but, hard work, dedication, and attention to detail supersede talent. A wise real estate agent becomes super valuable to their clients when they continue to learn each and every day.


Have you found your real estate agent who understands the DNA of the business? Our team at Beam & Branch Realty has the experienced you need! Our new agents to the business are learning and being mentored! We understand the importance of this business and that serving our clients to the best of our ability is paramount.


Come see us on the historic Granbury Square! We are here to serve YOU, our client! We take this business seriously and know you deserve the BEST!

The fact that every deal is different definitely makes this business more interesting, and more challenging. We are always learning!

Good morning Paula - I have felt that it really takes a year in a job before you really know it and you need mentors along the way.

I love the different aspects of each deal - and the challenges ( most of the time). Lol. It sounds as if you have a good program for your agents.

Hi Paula McDonald I've long thought education is key (which never ends) for new agents as well as experienced agents. Things contanly change and knowing the ins and outs of how to find solutions and bring things together for a client is critical. And doing it all with grace as well!

Hi Paula- I'm glad that Carol Williams included your post in her weekly series. It seems to me that it's smart to align yourself with someone who is smart enough to know what they don't know and willing to learn. Real estate is not an assembly line business. Because people are involved, every transaction will be different.

Hi Paula:

So nice to see this post from you!

Our business really is unique in many ways, with tremendous learning opportunities at every turn, and with each transaction, and buyer or seller client, being unique despite the standard stuff (laws, disclosures, paperwork) that mark every sale or purchase.

Good morning Paula McDonald ,

Hello Paula - there is definitely the unique aspect of real estate as we experience different story lines as each transaction unfolds but there is a basic structure that follows at least some of the time. Kinda like DNA.  It's a science and learning along the way certainly helps...

Paula, this is a great post! I really like the part about CE. It never ceases to amaze me how many agents pass on educational opportunities. I think one can never learn enough
